EUROSKIN is an independent non-profit making scientific
society, whose principal aims are to reduce the incidence and mortality
of skin cancer. It sets out to achieve this through the promotion and
co-ordination of collaborative actions between European professionals
active in the fields of primary and/or secondary prevention. These
include, for example, dermatologists, epidemiologists, biologists,
physicists and other professionals with an interest in these aims.
In carrying out its aims, EUROSKIN publishes articles and organises workshops and conferences. From these
come scientific status reports and recommendations towards:
Primary prevention by
promotion of scientific studies relevant to primary prevention
development, promotion and evaluation of effective information
promotion and development of solar UVR monitoring programmes
promotion of harmonisation of information programmes throughout Europe.
Secondary Prevention by
development, promotion and evaluation of effective strategies for secondary prevention of skin cancer
promoting population based skin cancer registration, harmonisation of
classification and other activities, essential to the evaluation of
a harmonised approach to the application of guidelines
In achieving the above aims, EUROSKIN works closely with its national, European and global Partners in Prevention.
